There are plenty of Rent a Car agencies in Bolivia, but you're better off choosing your car rental from a well-known, internationally recognized car hire agency, such as the ones listed below. Although their contact information for Santa Cruz is listed on this page, you can find agencies in other Bolivian cities on their websites. You can reserve a rental car online, or visit them.

You should ask to see the actual car you are going to rent to ensure it has been cleaned and maintained, and that it has all the safety features you expect. You should also make sure the car rental agency you plan to rent from insures its vehicles (and that they offer you additional insurance plans for the time you will rent a car).

Important Information for Foreign Drivers

Click here for tow truck contact information in Santa Cruz. When you choose to drive on your own in Bolivia, make sure your driver's license is acceptable in Bolivia and that you inform yourself on the weather and current road conditions. Read about personal safety and if you plan to drive your rent a car outside the city limits, read the latest news to be sure you will not enter an area where political activity or road blocks are occurring. It's also a good idea to ensure you have good maps of Bolivia which you can purchase online or at local office supply stores known as librerías. The Bolivian road transportation department provides this great interactive Bolivia road map online. Gas (petrol) stations are few and far between, and often completely non-existent once you leave city limits, therefore you should always have a full tank if planning a trip to rural areas.
